Biosoluble fibres are guaranteed asbestos and ceramic fibre-free. In order to eliminate the health risks associated with exposure to ceramic fibres or rock fibres for insulation, their chemical composition has been adapted. These fibres dissolve in bodily fluids such as those found in the pulmonary alveoli.
They are less biopersistent, meaning they are eliminated more quickly by the body while maintaining their excellent thermal insulation and fire protection qualities. Our biosoluble fibre products are reinforced with glass (650°C) or refractory steel (1050°C).

Biosoluble Fibre products
Biosoluble Fibre Strips
Biosoluble fibre strips are available in 2 mm, 3 mm and 5 mm thicknesses with widths of 10 mm to 20 mm. Adhesive strips and strips with bolt holes are also available.
Biosoluble Fibre Rolls
Biosoluble Fibre Ropes and Cords
Biosoluble fibre glass ropes and cords feature a fibre glass sheath. They can be reinforced with refractory steel or fibreglass. We offer diameters from 12 mm to 60 mm.
Biosoluble Fibre Braids
The biosoluble fibreglass braids are available in square or round sections. They are available in reinforced glass or refractory steel with diameters from 5 mm to 60 mm.
Bulk biosoluble Fibre
The product consists of a mass of randomly orientated, long, fluffy, resistant fibres.
Biosoluble Fibre Sheaths
Our sheaths are available in diameters of 15 mm to 60 mm.
Biosoluble Fibre flat Blankets
Biosoluble fibre blankets are obtained from long fibres of alkaline earth silicate. Their high-temperature insulation performance is remarkable. With high thermal stability, they retain a flexible fibrous structure up to a temperature of 1200°C.
Biosoluble Fibre Paper
Made from alkaline earth silicate wool, 300 paper has an extremely uniform structure, and is resistant to continuous temperatures up to 1260°C.
Biosoluble Fibre Fabric
Biosoluble fibre fabrics are available in 2 mm and 3 mm thicknesses. During production, they are heat-treated to limit flying fibres and dust.
